Sitting in a secluded glen by the side of the Burns of Rothes, Glenrothes is all about tradition. Doing things the traditional way, and quietly focusing on producing high quality single malt scotch whisky. As they have been doing for the past 140 years.
This cask is a prime example. Perhaps more porous than most, resulting in a greater loss of ABV over the two-odd decades it has slumbered, this cask has worked wonders and produced a beautiful sherried whisky.

About our Bottles
For us, one of the best aspects of a good single malt whisky is its ability to bring people together. So when we created our bottles we wanted to design something that felt like a decanter - meant to be passed around a group of friends, new and old, as they enjoy sharing a dram together.
Our bottles have a good weight to them, making them feel substantial and giving them the presence a good whisky deserves. We've offset the label, so that the whisky is centre stage; it shows the natural colour of the liquid clearly and proudly.
The label clearly and transparently shows you all the key information, including: the nature of the liquid (for example, single malt scotch) where it was distilled; how old it is; and how strong it is. All our liquids are natural colour and non chill filtered.
Our bottles come in two sizes: 700ml, which is our standard for our main releases; and for some of our expressions, 100ml minis.
